[341] Chiastic arrangement of clauses: “μετὰ πρώτοισι ἐόντας” answers to “μίμνετε δ᾽ ἄλλους”, and 342 to “ἀφέστατε 340.—μέν [μήν]”: emphasizes the preceding word. cf. “Ν 47, Ο 203, Τ” 92. Contrasted with “νῦν” 347.

ἐόντας: attracted from the case of “σφῶιν” to the acc. which already in Homer's time was most freq. with the infinitive. cf. “Α 541, Β 113, Ε” 716.
